I'd glad for the feedback--thx! BTW, I've been a horse owner/trainer for 26 years, and I've owned/bought/sold over 30 horses in that time--NOT a newbie. (I didn't keep any horses that were not suitable for the lesson program I used to run.) I've been watching CA for about a year now, and I pick and chose what I try on my OWN horses.
I like some of the things I'm seeing in this series. I'm absolutely DROOLING over his "horse amusement park" with the "clock cavaletti" (my term for it) and other cool training stuff that he's built--LOVE to have those things in my back yard!!
MY concern is about my 5 yo KMHSA who has had some nervous problems. I will NOT push and make him more nervous. I am working to keep him calm. If you have never owned one of these mountain horses, your don't know how they LOVE to set off like ambling race horses, and they'll travel for miles at 9 mph (yes, Virginia, my Garmon told me the speed), with a single cue.
DH and I are working with our 5 yo in my 55' square training area to get HIM to "walk the first mile out" and want to walk basically a lot more. If you'd care to elaborate about this series or CA, please continue, spirithorse8 and MyBoyPuck!
